Balayage is the “Technique” Ombre and Balayage are very similar, but there are very obvious distinctions between the two! The word “Balayage” comes from another French word meaning “to sweep.”
When applying the color for a balayage, you sweep the color through small triangle sections of the hair onto a board or foil, giving it the natural transition down into the lighter color. In Balayage, there are dark pieces left on the bottom to create dimension and a more natural look. This technique looks like natural sun-kissed highlights throughout the hair. The transition is more natural.Hair Painting
Hair Painting is a huge trend right now.. With this technique, the hair is painted freely, by hand and usually with an actual paint brush and palette. Hair should be laid flat and is typically separated by plastic wrap. The lightener or color is usually not placed in any specific pattern but where it should be seen. This technique creates natural-looking and softer tones. Plus it is much faster than foils and there is no possibility of lines of demarcation!
